What are all the environment differences from Vice City to Vice City Stories?

Examples:

Different Buildings/ Roads
Different Cars
Different Radio Stations, etc.

Honestly, there's too many to name, but here's a few:

-Sunshine Autos is still a construction site, and there's a trailer park behind it.

-Various apartment buildings/empty spaces have been replaced by the spots/buildings for the businesses.

-Um, haven't played the game in a long time, but the businesses are a lot of changes so that's a start.

The map is almost exactly the same as the regular Vice City only there's a shortcut road to the airport.

Not many new cars in this one. There's a Quad, Polaris V8, and a few other new cars.

The radio kicks ass in this game, though.

The Empire Building feature will keep your hands full for a while, too. Comparing the two, Vice City is better, IMO.

There's that bridge in VCS connecting Little Havana with Fort Baxter.
Harry and Lee's Vice City Vacation. It ended terribly.

There is no "freedom of speech" in forums, yes you can say what you want but in the end what the mods say gos. This is not a democracy.

VCS is set in '84, VC in '86. VCS also has the amphibious 6-wheeler.

If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it's meant to be.

If not, point & laugh when it flies into a woodchipper.

Does VCS have anything to do with Tommy Vercetti?

Nope, Tommy Vercetti's still in jail in 1984.

Buildings in Vice City in VCS had more neon-lighting than in VC.

There were more features...though most are irrelevant.

There are less interesting places....and annoying ones.

The notable landmarks in VC missed those marks, such as the logo of the Pole Position, the V-Rock station, the Malibu Club, the hotels in Vice Point.

Overall: Vice City > Vice City Stories.

I think that VCS is much better than VC. I don't know why but i never really got into VC, it just didn't pull me in like the others...

I have no problem with people believing what they want, until they think it's right to try and change what I believe.

I'm so happy, I could shit a rainbow!

VCS had a much better looking rendition of Vice City, more neon lighting, orange sunsets, areas that were empty in VC now have new places such as the theme park with the Chunder Wheel.

Being able to swim is one of the main advantages this game has over VC, Tommy's drowning was frustrating.

The radio in VCS is one of the best in the whole series, VC's was good, but this one has more songs I really like.

VCS has much more side stuff to keep you busy once the storyline is out of the way. Completing the storyline and nothing else only got you around 30% completion, so there is a lot to be done.

I really like the new, useful roads in VCS, particularly the ones that go from Little Havana to the airport.

For me, VCS was better.

I think Vice City Stories had better features, but I think Vice City still had a better storyline.

I missed the Washington Mall in VC.
When it comes to the buildings and landmarks, VC>VCS.
When it comes to storyline, VC>VCS
When it comes to graphics and accessibility, VC<VCS.

One difference is that in VCS you start on the west half of the map, in VC you're on the east. Something I miss from
VC is buying savehouses. In VCS you just unlock a few, like GTA3 or LCS.

Read back through the other VCS topics & you'll see what I call the "Super Mario" glitch. Just west of Stonewall J's in
Little Havana is a small construction site, a hole w/ a big exposed pipe. Jump on it in the right spot & you get warped
to the golfcourse, past the barriers & giving you access to the whole map including the Police Maverick on the roof of
the Washington Beach Police station. As far as I know it only works on the PS2 version.

If you watch your map, all the properties on the east half come up for sale just before the entire map opens. Use the
Super Mario glitch to go over & buy them out, w/out firing a shot.

I would still like the MAIN.SCR from VCS, add parts to VC & have the best of both w/out the crappy graphics of VCS.

What major gameplay elements were different?

Was VCS a much more realistic (graphics) game, Like IV was over LCS?
